How much do you know about racing games?
If you think games are just entertainment, you are wrong. Today’s games are a new bridge between the real and virtual. A game that projects the real world into the virtual world breaks the constraints of time and space. A typical example is a racing game.
A racing game called Sim Racing uses a physics engine to replicate the laws of physics in real life in the virtual world. This provides a sophisticated and realistic driving experience just like real motorsports. Although is a game, it requires physical strength and mental strength comparable to that of a real professional driver.
That’s why even pro racers are getting help from racing games. F1 professional racers train through games such as eye racing in the off season. It is to maintain driving sense through virtual races and to adapt to various circuit situations. A racing game that not only goes beyond the game but also provides practical training. What is the end of its use? Today let’s look at a racing game that is attracting attention for its various roles.
Can I make my debut as a professional racer just by playing well? The answer is ‘Yes’. Last year, the Korea Automobile Racing Association announced the ‘Digital Motorsports Guideline’ and recognized Sim Racing as an official motorsport.
The reason is the expectation that Sim Racing will lower the barriers to entry for motorsports. The International Automobile Federation (FIA) which hosts F1 Grand Prix, has been hosting the Sim Racing Competititon since 2019. In addition, motor sports groups in over 70 member countries under the FIA are using Sim Racing as the core program to expand the base of motor sports.
The spread of COVID-19 has also had an impact. Due to the impact of COVID-19 in 2020, the red light has turned for domestic motorsport competitions. To appease the delay of the schedule, some organizers held event-based sim racing competitions. It has been recognized for its potential as an official event, recording enthusiastic responses from viewers and a high number of concurrent users.
With the accreditation of the association, sim racing simulation events such as the e-superrace and Hyundai N e-Festival held in Korea and the records of participating players are certified and the players and competitions are supported and protected by the motor sports organization. Selection of national team is also promoted. They will participate in the FIA Motorsport Games digital event and the FIA Online Championship.
Joining this trend, the mobility industry is also paying attention to racing games. Because gaming skills are often proportional to actual driving skills. Therefore, brands participating in motorsport competitions have no choice but to be interested in racing games that can easily find talented players.
In response, the Mercedes Benz F1 racing team, ‘Mercedes AMG Petronas F1’, created the ‘Mercedes AMG F1 Petronas eSports’ team specializing in sim racing. Athletes are treated the same as pro racers. In addition to participating the race, he also serves as a test driver using the simulator to provide on the racing vehicle being developed.
Hyundai Motor Company is hosting the ‘Hyundai N e-Festival’ a digital motor sport competition. Even youth without driver’s license can freely participate in the racing game. Using this point, we are discovering young players and nurturing them so they can debut as professional racers.
In addition to the automotive industry, the Halla Group carries out activities in many other areas. These include, for example, shipbuilding, education and sports.
One of the largest brands in the automotive supply industry is Mando Aftermarket, which is part of the South Korean Halla Corporation Europe.
This event was organized by one of the largest purchasing groups in the world called Nexus, with which we cooperate.
